Great to know because I sent an email on his old website and got it back. I will try to reach him and let you all know what's up, thanks.

Q & A / Re: Easiest distortion?
« Last post by Isaac on September 20, 2016, 07:47:55 am »
I'm afraid I can't. I'm not familiar with any other brand, as I've owned my Scholtz for decades now. I do know that some players prefer other brands, saying that the Scholtz provides a purely resistive load rather than the complex load of an actual speaker, and therefore changes the sound of the amp. That hasn't been my experience, but YMMV.

I'm surprised that newer attenuators aren't suited for high power amps. I always figured that's what they were for!

I know this is kind of an old thread, but I am interested in getting the plans for 2000S cabs and also 200S cabs. Can you please let me know the best way to contact Mr Sundholm? I tried emailing him at the contact address c.sundholm@comcast.net listed at conradamps.com, but it got bounced back to me.

These are sometimes called the Smiley Face amps because of the logo badge. A search for Smiley Face will give you more info.

Thanks Isaac! Just one more question: any other attenuators you might recommend rated for a 100watt (If a Sholtz isn't available?) I looked up some newer attenuators, but the one's I saw aren't really suited for high wattage amps.

Back in the 60's the plywood available in the North West was Douglas Fir. This has a somewhat distinctive grain pattern. Tight grain spacing with big swirls and areas of wide grain spacing. Later plywood doesn't show the tight swirling areas. If the baffle was replaced, it might have this later grain pattern. The black paint would have been sprayed on at the factory. Look for any brush marks.

Please only post in one of the sub-forums. I have removed your other post.

The head you have purchased is from the first year, 1965. Can't determine if it is a 40W or 60W amp without a complete photo of the back of the amp. The part shown in the second pic is only the preamp. The power amp is on a chrome chassis on the other end. It may be missing.

Q & A / LOUDTHUD! I need your help on the SB160
« Last post by ejudasf on September 18, 2016, 01:01:59 pm »
I am new here, and am hoping to get a descent copy of the schematic for the SB160. 

I don't understand where the op amp voltages originate from.  I may have more troubles as well.  I hope you can help.

Thanks.
